FIFA mum on Sepp Blatter's Women's World Cup travel plans

Outgoing FIFA president Sepp Blatter could be interviewed by Swiss authorities investigating potential fraud surrounding the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
Switzerland's attorney general said his investigation into possible money laundering incidents relating to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding contests would not exclude interviewing FIFA president Sepp Blatter and Secretary-General Jerome Valcke.
The ESPN FC crew respond to reports that Sepp Blatter is considering running for FIFA president again, while Shaka Hislop is not surprised in the least bit.

With one week to go, FIFA would not confirm whether Sepp Blatter will attend the Women's World Cup Final in Canada following dual investigations into the sport's governing body by U.S. and Swiss justice authorities.

Blatter would normally attend the final and hand over the trophy to the captain of the winning team but FIFA will not confirm whether he or secretary general Jerome Valcke will attend.

A FIFA spokesperson said: "In terms of the FIFA president and the FIFA secretary general, their future...

That led to calls for him to be fired, with Russia's former FIFA...

Alisher Usmanov loans Russia more cash for Fabio Capello wages

Russia's inability to capitalise on their chances allowed Austria to secure a 1-0 win, courtesy of Marc Janko's acrobatic finish.
Fabio Capello is contracted to Russia until after the 2018 World Cup.

Alisher Usmanov said he has loaned the Russian Football Union (RFU) a further 300 million roubles (£3.5 million) to pay wages owed to national team coach Fabio Capello.

Arsenal shareholder Usmanov said in February that he had loaned the RFU 400 million roubles after the Russia boss went without pay for over six months.

The billionaire said he has now made a further loan to ensure Capello, who signed a lucrative contract extension in January 2014, receives the money he is owed.

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains that a revote could be in the works for the Russia and Qatar World Cups.

Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko revealed in April that the government...
